Read Not Guess provides instruction, encouragement

When Chad Aldeman realized this spring that his 8-year-old son would guess when encountering unfamiliar words while reading, the Georgetown University education researcher came up with Read Not Guess.

It’s a 30-day summer reading challenge “to help parents get their kids ready to start the next school year strong,” Aldeman writes for The 74. From July 18 to Aug. 19, parents who sign up will receive a daily email containing a short lesson, and each one should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
